These injuries don’t just affect your game and your athleticism; they can also affect your well-being.
Houston, TX (PRWEB) August 29, 2017
Dr. K. Mathew Warnock, MD has announced that he is making his services and expertise in sports medicine available for the upcoming football season. Dr. Warnock is a board certified orthopedic surgeon who will serve as a team doctor for the Cyfair, Tomball, Klein, Spring and Aldine areas.
Sports medicine is the branch of medicine that focuses on the prevention and treatment of sports-related injuries. Sports medicine doctors have specialized training to treat injuries for professional and non-professional athletes so that these athletes can get back in the game as quickly as possible. Sports injuries typically affect the musculoskeletal system and are related to the tendons, muscles, ligaments and bones.
Dr. Warnock emphasizes the importance of injury prevention when participating in football or any other sport or physical activity, and he can recommend a variety of prevention techniques and stretches. Even with disciplined prevention practices, however, injuries can still occur. “These injuries don’t just affect your game and your athleticism; they can also affect your well-being,” said Dr. Warnock. “When you are prevented from doing what you love because of a sports-related injury, even for a brief period of time, it can have adverse effects on your mental health, as well.”
Common sports injuries include Meniscal tears, ACL tears, shoulder rotator cuff injuries and shoulder dislocations. After a thorough diagnosis, Dr. Warnock devises a treatment plan that may include physical therapy or surgery.
Dr. Warnock has expertise in pediatric orthopedics, sports medicine, knee surgery, shoulder and elbow surgery, hand surgery, foot and ankle surgery and orthopedic trauma. He has performed research in orthopedics and has presented at orthopedic meetings. He has written book chapters and published scientific articles on the topic and has been involved in the training of other orthopedic surgeons.
